The American Community Survey program (ACS) supplements the 10-year cycle of census data collection by annually surveying a representative sample of the country’s population. The resulting data provides timely, demographic information at the community level. As part of the ACS, the 2010 Puerto Rico Community Survey employed a single long form questionnaire completed by one in 100 of households through both direct and self-enumeration. A 1% sample of households from the survey drawn by the U.S. Census Bureau (36,032 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
